The best teams outside the ACC they play are UMASS, Dartmouth,USC, NW , . Not bad, Navy will struggle this year. Compared to their main competition in the conference UNC who plays outside the ACC NW, JMU, MD, FL. I guess we will have to wait until the season but comparatively I would say BC plays a weaker non ACC schedule. In the end maybe its a benefit to do so when you play in such a difficult conference, who knows.

Those West Coast teams are always over hyped and come the NCAA tournament when all teams have the same amount of preparation time they get revealed for what they are .

ND could make some noise if it weren't for the Head coach.

Agree. Coaching plays a huge role in a teams success or lack thereof. You need the players but without coaching the players have no chance. Same is true for the reverse, the best coaches need to have significant depth of talent to win. The combination of good coaching and sufficient depth of talent is the recipe for winning. That combination obviously does not always lead to a championship but the teams with both are constantly fighting to be in the Top 10 - 15. Success begets success. Every year the large majority of top high school players choose to go to the top college programs (notice, I did not say "all"). The top programs generally get the majority of the players they want and the rest of the schools are left to recruit other players. Winning a National Championship is very difficult. Look no further than North Carolina, it took JL 16 years to win a Championship at UNC. JMU had an incredible run last year, congrats to the coaches and players. Will any team outside the usual suspects have a chance this year? Very tough for any team that does not bring in top talent to consistently crack the Top 10 - 15. Making it to the Elite Eight, Final For or winning a National Championship is very difficult.
